a Web App?
A web application is software that is on a website that is accessed via
a browser. There is no need to download and install on your
computer--just visit the website and use. It does require an
internet connection, however. Common web applications are Google
Docs, Pandora Radio, Facebook, Flickr and even common webmail.
If a web
application saves data, people may refer to this as "saving on the
cloud" or Cloud Computing. This basically means that your data is
saved on a webserver somewhere, instead of on your computer's
hard drive. The advantages of Cloud Computing is that you can
access the files from anywhere, from any computer, and using any
system (Windows, Mac, and Linux)--as long as you have an internet
connection. Some people are a bit hesitant to store data in the cloud,
but most websites keep this data very secure and keep backups, so many
people do not have any trouble using this type of service.
Sometimes these types of apps are also referred to as Web 2.0.
Many feel Web 2.0 is the future of applications, leaving the current
Windows-centric model behind, but others feel widespread acceptance is

Mobile Evolution™ blog - by Creative Algorithms
Evolution is the
name of our new blog.
The blog is a look at thoughts, insights, and experiences related to
the mobile software industry. Mobile Evolution will cover topics
related to the evolving mobile space, with a dash of Web 2.0, from the
perspective of a small business owner.
The intention is to give insight into what goes on at a mobile software
company, as well as industry discussions, plus tips for fellow
developers. We've already posted a variety of topics from
marketing mobile software (using ESD's, pricing apps), to a discussion
on the fragmentation of mobile software
platforms, to AppStore thoughts, to thoughts
about the decline in software sales for Palm OS despite the Centro's
huge successes. Please
take a look and be sure to subscribe to the RSS feed. If
there are topics you'd like to see, please let us know. We also
welcome your comments after the posts--discussion is always good. :)
